Kmart shopper is outraged to find half of her $79 Christmas tree ‘missing’ and looks ‘NOTHING like advertised’ – before critics turn on her instead
- Kmart customer Stephanie was outraged after opening up her Christmas tree
- Once pulling it out she noticed that the bottom half was very sparse of branches
- While individuals on Facebook suggested it was a ‘dud’, others weren’t so sure
- Commenters suggested she simply ‘fluff up’ the branches and expand them
A Kmart customer was outraged to unpack her brand new Christmas tree only to find it was far sparser and less jolly than she was expecting but not everyone has blamed the budget retailer for the ‘problem’.
Stephanie shared two pictures of the six-foot pre-lit Green Christmas Tree to a Facebook hacks group, showcasing what the $79 tree was meant to look like and what she unfurled on November 18.
‘Purchased the Christmas tree and went to put it up today to find out half the tree is missing and it looks nothing like the photo. Not cool and not a happy customer,’ she said.

The tree is advertised as having 200 LED warm white lights and green foliage on a metal stand, with a promise that it’s ‘easy to assemble’.
Unfortunately Stephanie’s particular tree was sparse from the middle right down to the metal base, causing her significant stress.
‘Definitely a dud… this is my Kmart pre-lit Christmas tree,’ one comment read, showing a beautifully well-lit and decorated design.
‘Yeah nah that’s a dud. This is my $22 Kmart tree and I haven’t even hardly fluffed it yet. Take it back,’ said another.
A third added: ‘Kind of looks like you started fluffing out the top then gave up. Ours looked like this and worked out perfectly. Takes a lot of time and effort though’.
Comments on Facebook suggested Stephanie needed to simply ‘fluff up’ and expand each of the branches so that it resembled the top half of her tree.
‘This is the exact same tree from Kmart. I just had to separate the branches and fluff it out a little,’ one person wrote.
‘This ain’t it you’ve got to actually pull the branches out and fluff it not just attach it to the base and expect it to expand by itself,’ said another.
Another said: ‘I think if you go through and fluff up all the branches that will make a massive difference’.
The tree itself is a popular choice at Kmart with many of Stephanie’s readership claiming they owned it – and loved using it – each year.
